Cultural Programs


Our Indigenous-led paint nights take place virtually multiple times a month, and are currently led by Pamela. These are a great opportunity for spirit-building, connecting with community members, and learning a new skill. Classes are open to all levels of skill, as step-by-step directions are provided to participants to explore their creativity and create something beautiful.

Virtual Beading Classes

AO’s Cultural Support and Indigenous Wellness & Healing team are excited to provide virtual beading classes to all self-identifying First Nations, Inuit and Métis community members. These classes will be offered via Zoom at no cost, with material kits provided to those within the delivery or pick-up distance to our Guelph and Kitchener Centre of Healing locations.

Ribbon Skirt & Shirt Workshops

AO hosts a series of Ribbon Skirt & Shirt Workshops throughout the year. In these workshops, members of the Indigenous community can participate to sew Ribbon Skirts or Shirts, creating an environment in which they can connect with their culture and reclaim their identity.
